Understanding the factors contributing to maintaining biodiversity is crucial to mitigate the impact of anthropogenic disturbances. Representing large proportions of green area in highly modified landscapes, residential gardens are often seen as local habitats that can contribute to larger networks of suitable environments at the landscape scale. We investigated the impact of the landscape context on butterfly communities observed in residential gardens, taking into account garden… CONTINUE READING
